Curated by Caroline Riedel and Robbyn Gordon Lanning

This was a presentation of the collaborative work of students, faculty and volunteer professionals who have been working under the direction of Dr. John Olseon (Greek and Roman Studies, University of Victoria) at the Humayma archaeological site in Jordan. This exhibit features historic artifacts and contemporary art forms as well as photography of the site and the relationships formed there. The photos were taken by Robbyn Gordon.

Humayama was on an ancient trade route and was occupied by the Roman military, then Byzantine Christian clergy, and then the Abbasids.
